Start in the bowl 40 feet up under the impressive overhanging wall. Climb through four bolts of amazing, Red River Gorge-style varnish pockets to a shallow body-sized hueco. A stretch and some delicate moves up and right gain the flake on the arete, and six more bolts of sustained, steep jugs finally brings you to the anchor. Pumpy. Once it's fully cleaned up, it will be every inch its four stars.
Bolts to chains.
Brian begins Lunatic. 95 feet to go!
Mike in the middle of Lunatic's crux.
Greg through the crux of Lunatic.
Lee on a toprope burn of Lunatic. Steep!
Mike four bolts up on Lunatic.
Ocean in the midst of (perhaps) the second ascent ...
Greg in the opening pockets of Lunatic.
Ocean half way home.
Brian on the arete of Lunatic.
Ocean at the anchor. Long sport pitch!
by far my favorite route at the Fringe!

This line is worth the hike- super fun and mellow start to a very doable crux to an interesting and sustained 50' of climbing. This route is long and fun and not to be missed. Very excited to see it clean up a bit more!

This is a classic. Great, sustained climbing. 5.11- at least until the flake half way up breaks off.
